13 & 14 December 2023, KBC Brussels
KBC organizes for the second time an exclusive 2-day Winter School for a selected group of PhD candidates and postdocs of the 5 Flemish universities.
Focus of this year’s edition: an interdisciplinary case competition to solve real-world Environmental, Social and Governance problems defined by four different companies.
Who should participate?
Doctoral candidates (≥ 3rd year of their PhD trajectory) and postdoctoral researchers from all domains.
KBC puts great emphasis on diversity, on diverse teams and diverse expertise to solve problems in a sustainable way, and therefore welcomes early-stage researchers from all research backgrounds.
What to expect?
Last year’s participants formed a Linkedin group that might be interesting for your reference.
How to register?

Deadline for registration is 15 October 2023.
There is limited seating per university. Participants will be selected on the basis of their motivation statement.
The four cases by the four companies will be shared with the 100 selected participants. Based on your preference for a case, the coordinators will form interdisciplinary and interuniversity teams of 5 PhDs / postdocs. The teams then start working together and prepare a (poster) presentation for 13 December.
